Summer Clerks

My experience at Preston Russell has been nothing but enjoyable. With a friendly and supportive team and a wide range of law to engage with, there is never a dull moment. I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to work at Preston Russell, it has been an invaluable experience. Shania Gibb, 2020/21 Summer Clerk

The summer clerking period runs from mid-November to mid-February.

Our Summer clerks are supervised by a Partner and can expect to undertake a variety of tasks, including:

  • research
  • drafting documents
  • opinion-writing

You will be included in any in-house training and will be shown how to use the Firm’s practice management and document management systems. Depending on the practice area you are assigned to, you may be involved in the day-to-day running of client files, sitting in on client interviews and observing at Court.

We work hard, but we have fun too and you will be invited to our Christmas function, and included in other social events during your time with us.

Applications

Please email a cover letter, CV and a copy of your Academic Transcript to Christine McLeod. Applications for 2021/22 summer period are now open.
